Good to hear from you.My entire branch of DeLaughter's are from Arkansas and S. Carolina.
To my knowledge, there is no connection with my name and the Claudia who was marrid to Wayne Peel.However, I am still sure that my clan is somehow related to Clinton's real family.Clinton is not his real name.
I was the one who mentioned Mississippi Burning.They are the Mississippi DeLaughters.
I have seen the Pauline Grace DeLauter book that one of our relatives had at a family reunion a while back.But, it is now out of print.That was when I learned that Strom Thumond's mother was a DeLaughter.Her name was Charity, I believe.
I assume your wife is a relation of the original DeLauters in France and Germany.I would be very interested in knowing if her early relatives were from S. Carolina or Maryland.
